While we all love deals, sometimes it’s best to keep things exclusive and invest in experiences that will enrich you.
Here’s our suggestion of the most exclusive must-dos this month. Read on...
Plan this - Holi weekend at Forsyth Lodge (₹39,900)
If you’re the delusional yet privileged millennial who thinks saving water on holi will save the planet, but have endless showers everyday, then a weekend spent in the lap of nature is your perfect escape this month. While your friends back home are busy hosting loud parties, you can seek solace at Forsyth Lodge, perched in the midst of 44 acres of wilderness at the end of Satpura Tiger Reserve. Living in the mud cottages, all the while maintaining a discreet sense of luxury… a blissful and wholesome wildlife experience awaits you, my friend. This Holi weekend (March 21-24) could not have been spent doing anything else. Everyone working at the lodge believe in sustainable living, and while they share their love for nature and make your weekend wilder than any Holi party back home could ever get, maybe you could learn a thing or two about it while soaking in the local experience.
Do this - Rock Climbing: Lambi Dehar Mines (₹1200 per head)
The hills are calling… if Mussoorie is on your list this summer (March to May), then plan your trip to include this fun, single day outdoor activity. Get beginner-level proficiency in rock climbing and gain other skills like belaying, rappelling and knots in just a day with the pros who are dedicated to making sure the hills remain charming as ever. An adventurous spirit, a decent level of fitness and undying love for the outdoors is all you need to register for this programme. The Lambi Dehar Mines hold the reputation of being haunted and attracts paranormal enthusiasts ever-so-often. But worry not, you’re in safe company... though a chill down the spine is a service the organisers don’t charge you for. That comes complimentary once you hear fellow climbers explore the area and talk about the various stories that give the Lambi Dehar Mines its haunted reputation.

The Kalras are culinary experts, and there’s no second thoughts about that. A fine dine experience that’s a perfect mix of traditional and modern to create a unique experience for food lovers like ourselves.
